Austin Wiseman, the 12-year-old found dead in his grandparents' Ohio home along with his 9-year-old half brother Wednesday, actually shot the younger Blake Campbell, authorities say. Each boy died of a single gunshot wound to the head, and it's not clear whether the younger boy's shooting was intentional or an accident.
